But Chuck is STILL waiting for Oprah 14

I saw Chuck live in 1966, he was beaten twice (not 3 times as wiki said below) the same night by Tonny Tulleners

Rise to fame

Chuck Norris in 1966, Norris was defeated in his first two tournaments, dropping decisions to Joe Lewis and Allan Steen and three matches at the International Karate Championships to Tony Tulleners. By 1967 Norris had improved enough that he scored victories over the likes of Lewis, Skipper Mullins, Arnold Urquidez, Victor Moore, Ron Marchini, and Steve Sanders. In early 1968, Norris suffered the tenth and last loss of his career, losing an upset decision to Louis Delgado. On November 24, 1968, he avenged his defeat to Delgado and by doing so won the Professional Middleweight Karate champion (non-contact) title, which he held for six consecutive years.[4] In 1969, he won Karate's triple crown for the most tournament wins of the year, and the Fighter of the Year award by Black Belt Magazine.

I have 3 copies of that magazine, might be worth something(?)

I remember the Bayfair drive-in. 3 Bruce Lee films for $1.50 a car load. Since Bruce Lee was teaching in Oakland in those days the Drive-in Movie was for Lovers, KJer, teenage drunks > and Brawlers. So if it wasn't finished at the drive-in, you hit east 14th and setted up on the street.

and the turnaround at Prings...

His dojo, or whatever he called it, was on east 14th. Bruce & James Lee. My intructor in those daze was Jim Mather, a student of Tak Kubota. Remember the Gaylord brothers in Hayward? Wally Jay taught in Hayward also-early Jujitsu dude. Yeah, I played a lot of tag karate in those daze, Bruce Lee was the real deal and Norris had BAD teeth then
